The "Disease" View Edit

In werewolf lore the disease view has had a spot light in many movies as well as old lore.

In old lore it was called Lycanthropy or lycopthrosy where it infects you and slowly turns you until you become a full circle werewolf changing between werewolf and human through the cycle of night and day.

The Morphing Process Edit

In old lore some show it as quick and more of a quiet change, as where others show it as a violent change breaking the humans bones as the beast takes over.

The "Curse" View
Lycanthrope

the common appearence of a werewolf

Edit

Many show werewolves as a curse where a powerful person or creature inflicts it upon a human that has done something wrong and now must travel through the landscape killing to live and awaking to a slaughtered village or farmhouse.

The Mental State Edit

Some show the human and werewolf as beast and man no connection just the human awaking like from a dream and usually going insane unless the human was a warrior or didn't mind the fact of waking to find your bad dream killed families around you . Other myths show it as tied where the human has control and is merely following orders of some other creature god or lord.

Only a pure-blooded werewolf can change his appearance at will and maintains complete control over the beast within.

Ways of transformationEdit

Over the years there have been many possibilities of becoming a Lycanthrope. One common way is to be bitten by a werewolf or have some sort of phycical contact either it's through biting or being wounded by one. Another way of becoming a werewolf is by drinking water out of a wolf foot print. A older way is to drink the blood of a wolf and preform a blood ritual.

Another way is to be the seventh son of the seventh son of the seventh son. But only pure-blooded werewolves are born this way.
